1968 Mexico City Olympics

Lance Wyman's seminal 1968 Olympics Graphic Identity

Summer of ‘68

Almost a half-century later, Lance Wyman’s graphics program for the 1968 Mexico City Olympic games is still considered Gold medal-worthy.

In 1963, Mexico won the bid to host the XIX Olympiad, becoming the first Latin American site for the Games. Staging the Olympics gave the country a unique opportunity to showcase Mexico City as a modern capital with far more to offer than piñatas and fiestas--including a 7,350-foot altitude that supported record-breaking athletic performances.

Paul Mijksenaar

We help people to find their way, sometimes by signs.

We help people to find their way. Of course we still advise to put up signs when applicable. But more and more we change our focus to architectural and spatial planning. The more signs you see, the worse the architecture. We don't 'show' the way people have to go but encourage natural wayfinding.
